Many health officials and governments around the world are encouraging their citizens to wear masks in public. This is because of how easily the coronavirus spreads. Until a cure or vaccine can be found, it is best to wear a mask to protect yourself and those around you.
However, wearing a mask can be uncomfortable as it feels a little hot and makes breathing a little difficult. However, LG thinks they have the answer to this problem. The company, called LG PuriCare, essentially created a battery-powered face mask with built-in fans.
According to LG, PuriCare wearables can deliver fresh, clean air indoors and outdoors thanks to LG's latest advances in air purification with high-performance replaceable filters. With its dual fans and patented breath sensor, LG's portable air purifier enables users to ingest clean, filtered air while the breath sensor detects the cycle and volume of the wearer's breath and adjusts the dual three-speed fans accordingly. The fans automatically speed up to help air intake and slow down to reduce exhalation resistance and make breathing easier. "
The mask uses filters that can be changed if necessary, and the associated app actually notifies users when they think it might. LG doesn't mention how much the mask will cost, but it is expected to be released in select markets in the fourth quarter of 2020.
